Land













x 6
x 5
x2













Artifacts







Creatures


















Enchantments





Planeswalkers




Instants



















Sorceries















Basically, the idea is that I stay low while I build up board position, playing the role of the control player when necessary. Once I have an opening, switch gears and try to deal direct damage and go for the kill.

For a full discussion on this deck and the history, here is the primer on MTGS.

Patron of the Moon could be good since it can drop nonbasics, although typically by the time I can cast it, I won't have much mana in my hand. Dreamscape Artist seems counterproductive since I don't have a way to get stuff out of the gy and don't own Crucible of Worlds. I like the Explorer's Scope idea. Not sure why I didn't include one, since I have a ton long around.

Is it wrong I don't trust this list because its April the 1st?

The lack of draw spells strikes me as strange. A wise man said that card draw is blues land searching. Or maybe its just my addiction to X draw spells like or ? Stuff like that keeps stocked or at the very least lets you hit land drops consistently. Plus could be good with all the land you're pulling from your deck. I use it in my experiment Kraj deck because I land ramp hard and it works surprisingly well.

Elesh is seen as a dick move 70+% of the time in my experience. is far nicer, although he shouldn't e in the deck if Mindslaver is a big problem in your meta.

With all the combos, poison, gen damage, and Magister Sphinx/Sorins, life gain is not any more powerful than ok. With that in mind, Wall of Reverence, BSA, and Trans Master aren't that great IMO. Some strong replacements would be any of the white walkers, , , or Esper Charm.

Elesh and the other three big praetors are all considered dick moves by most I know. They aren't considered dick moves because they help you or hinder the opponent. They are because they do both hyper efficiently and also serve as massive monsters (although Jin is not big at all). Elesh's douchiness lies in her ability to shut out token decks, any aggro deck, and a good number of generals. It also makes your creatures a bit too big a bit too easily.

Fair enough. She also does not fit the theme of the deck in any which way, so that would be strike two against her. Actually, that works great, because I can replace her with , and he would be perfect for my deck.

Bump.

I've been playing this deck a fair amount in my current meta, and it was severely lacking in GY hate, which is prevalent. Here is the updated list. The deck still feels like it's lacking, and I need to pack more heat, but I don't know what to do short of revamping the entire thing. Thoughts?

Bumped again, due to major deck overhaul.

Completely overhauled the deck and OP. Posted the list over on MTGS during the downtime (in their primer format) and structured the OP in the same format.

This looks like a ton of fun to play.
